Election Night

So I don’t often (if ever) get political here, but tonight matters too much to just let it slide by. Obama’s victory is huge, but there’s tons of smaller victories across the board that might get lost in the presidential shuffle.

  1. Todd Akin lost.
  2. Richard Mourdock lost.
  3. Elizabeth Warren won.
  4. Tammy Baldwin won.
  5. Gay marriage legalized in Maine.
  6. Gay marriage legalized in Maryland.
  7. Recreational marijuana legalized in Colorado.
  8. Recreational marijuana legalized in Washington.

Obama isn’t my ideal candidate. He’s not bad, but he’s definitely not ideal. However, everything else on that list, and plenty of other things that I missed or neglected, came out on the right side of progress.

Oh, and I’ve said it before, but just to put it down on the proverbial paper: I want to vote for Elizabeth Warren for president in 2016.

    I missed that entirely. It’ll be interesting to see how that plays out.
